Experiencing The Magician’s Nephew at Shaw Festival

The Magician’s Nephew at Shaw Festival
During the Shaw Festival 2017, we had a memorable experience watching Wilde Tales. Our children enjoyed being part of the one-hour pre-show workshop, where they got to work with the cast and be part of the play. This year we were eager to see what show will be suitable to watch as a family - and went to watch The Magician's Nephew at the Festival Theatre, and experience the one hour workshop of Creating the Magician's Nephew before the show.

We chose to stay at the Cardinal, Ottawa South KOA during our road trip from Toronto towards Ottawa, Outaouais, and the Laurentians. Staying at the KOA deluxe cabin made it comfortable to relax, play, and make our meals leisurely before heading further into our trip.

Pure Leaf Tea

pure leaf tea
During our visits to Sri Lanka, a country famous for its exceptional tea, we have had the pleasure to visit tea plantations. The landscapes in these regions are memorable and beautiful. I have seen the plantation workers hard at work during the heat of the day hand-picking every leaf that we enjoy. Most of the workers I have seen doing this tedious work are women. As tea-lovers, we have been indulging the delicious, different flavours of Pure Leaf tea.
